Issue is not likely to be an explosive scattering of pieces parts of the handgun- it will be sharply accelerated wear and tear on the gun. Possibly a life span of 4-5 boxes of ammo (in an extreme case).

My suggestion- shoot the ammo that cycles your auto 100.0000% of the time. The 9mm Water Buffalo Crusher that will not feed or eject leaves you holding a poorly designed club.

9mm is not enuff for you? Go buy a .40. A .38 Special not up to it? That's why they make .357 magnums- which are WAY beyond any Plusing and Peeing.
Sound advice and wisdom (as always) ... On several oocasions I've found myself at the range next to fella's hoot'n it up cause they've been able to produce a round that shoots flames from their firearm.. I always ask myself "WHY...?"

Anywho

At some point I may add a G19 to the stable. If I do so and load it for carry/HD, it may very well be loaded with +P+ ammo. This is simply because I'm a big fan of the Win Ranger 127gr +P+ JHP round and consequently happen to possess a fair amount of it. That's my own choice and I'm willing to accept the consequences that accompany this decision. My expectation is that it'll perform flawlessly (this would first be tested extensively at the range, of course).

For those new to shooting, the entirety of this thread should be considered...especially the opening post. Basically, it's important to recognize that there is no CYA policy if your Glock blows up with higher pressure ammo, and running a steady diet of it through your gun probably isn't a great idea. Running a limited amount of it through your gun (testing) and carrying it is probably a safe bet in my opinion. But that's my opinion about your gun....FWIW.

Not a lover or even necessariliy a preferer of Glock, but I do believe in their performance. I'll be first in line to tell you the grip angle and resulting sight picture annoy me. The trigger isn't my favorite either. But in my experience they offer excellent weight/capacity ratio, shoot well for me, and just plain work.

Default in regards to

the ammo and Glocks, I posted in another forum on a similar topic with mosty confusion replys. I traded for some Winchester "super unleaded" (yes, it says that on the box) and its 147 grain. It does not mention anything about +P or the like. I've heard that its not been in production for a year +/-, but with the heaver bullet, I was wondering where it stands on the P scale. It's in a silver box.
Thanks, Tim.

So, its my understanding from this forum and from the research I have done online that shooting 9mm NATO ammo out of your glock would be okay?

My two Glock "19's" have eaten many +P rounds. One was mfg in 1990, the other was made in 1992 (Gen 2) and, both function perfectly. Glocks are just great guns for the money IMO. WALI...........

Just +p is expensive to use for practice

No. Some are, and should be labeled as such.
